"Say hello to my little fring," is an unusual linguistic construction.

Miami English (and Spanish, for that matter) definitely has a distinct accent.  90% Cuban influenced, but also this odd New England strain from all the retired whites.  Nobody in Miami says "forward".  It's always "foe word".

/And stop trying to whitewash "Latino".  You can't ungender an entire language, FFS.

PSA: If you are ever in Miami you MUST go to one of the many family owned Cuban restaurants. You'll thank me later.

If you ever go to Greece, you MUST try one of the many family owned Greek restaurants.  You'll thank me later.

I have... and you're right.

But here's why your joke falls flat. I didn't say go to Cuba and go to a Cuban restaurant. So, the analogy doesn't work. And no, saying Miami might as well be Cuba doesn't work here. Second, I didn't say go to a Cuban restaurant. I specifically stated a family owned restaurant. A different beast altogether than say going to any old Italian restaurant in Italy.  The mom and pop joints are always better and more authentic.

I get it, you're not Cuban and not from Miami.  Relax.

Will Smith's Miami is not that good.

I wish someone would do a good Miami song.
